Hi doctor,

I am eight weeks pregnant and have had morning sickness for the past two weeks. But today, when I woke up, I felt a bit sick, and it went away quickly. I threw up half an hour back, but I am not feeling sick. Should I be worried about this? Am I having a miscarriage? Kindly help.

Thank you.



Welcome to

I understand you are concerned about the absence of morning sickness and are worried about whether it could be a sign of miscarriage. Morning sickness and vomiting in pregnancy are due to the hormone beta hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). The level of this hormone starts decreasing towards the third month as the level of other hormone progesterone increases, and thus the symptoms of morning sickness may also decrease. Generally, it happens around 10 to 12 weeks of pregnancy but can also occur in earlier stages of pregnancy. A miscarriage would have other signs like bleeding or pain in the lower abdomen. If you are still concerned about this, it would be better to get an ultrasound done.

Thank you.
